Vöglein, wohin so schnell?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vöglein, wohin so schnell?
"Nach Norden, nach Norden!
Dort scheint die Sonne nun so hell,
Dort ist's nun Frühling [geworden]1."
O Vöglein mit den Flügeln bunt,
Und wenn du kommst zum Lindengrund,
Zum Hause meiner Liebe,
Dann sag' ihr daß ich Tag und Nacht
von ihr geträumt an sie gedacht,
und daß ich treu geblieben.
Und die Blumen im Tal,
Grüss' tausend Mal!
